NBL stats keeping needs a massive overhaul #amateurhour
NBL stats keeping needs to be completely changed, professionalised, accurate and consistent.
Why is there a big debate about whether Sobey got a triple double tonight? Why is this a thing? How many people sit on the stats bench each game? Does Sobey really look like Drmic.
5:37 left in the game and Drmic nails a wide open 3. The pass is clearly from Wiley from the high post? Why is Sobey credited the assist.
4 minutes to go in the game and DJ drives to the hoop where he is met by Mitch Young and swatted. Block credited to Loughton. Why?
10k on the line via fantasy amongst fans. Professional contracts on the line for imports who rely on their performances when it comes to getting gigs overseas. Do we need to have Mickell Gladness scenarios EVERY SINGLE GAME?
Then there's the scrolling stats bar at the bottom. Why is this COMPLETELY WRONG????? What other professional league just randomly generates players and numbers and gets it rolling there? This thing needs to be removed. It provides negative value. The constant graphics they go to at timeouts are always wrong or dated. The other day the commentators were bragging about Cotton's big game and the graphic was happy to show us he scored 0 points :)
While we're at it, can we run Matt and Dwayne Russell through a referees course. I have to second guess every single call they make after a whistle because they clearly do not understand the game of basketball. Get Felix Van Hofe, Matt Mcquade or some of the NBL TV guys to do it. The preseason guys. ANYONE over these 2 clowns.
Firing them would be preferable, but the NBL has proven they are ok being a B-tier sports league in this Country.
